Truth scares
The closer we get to the light
The more the shadow feels like comfort
Sinking in lies not to feel the truth

Ask a man what makes him tremble in his soul
You may find it’s not the terror one at first portrays
But yet, that soft dawn light
Which comes into the darkness of a man’s world
Bringing redemption but exposing truth
It is being known in which man fears most

However gentle and soft the light may be
However quietly it approaches a man's heart

To see oneself in a light
Another light
From another world

Perhaps there is nothing more terrifying
To know one's own depth
And not be able to bear one's own darkness
